I am a fan of literary fiction so I was surprised when I I was taken in hook, line, and sinker by this novel. I can't say it crosses over the line to literary but here's what it does do.

  • It captures the reader's interest--immediately.
  • The characters are wholly original and captivating.
  • There are surprises at every turn.
  • The structure makes Username a page-turner.
  • It nimbly crosses genres so the audience should be wide. So, yes. Horror. Crime. Thriller. But also a book for women (though men will love it, too!), a book for feminists searching for strong female characters; a book that explores cultural issues. Username bursts out of its genre (or genres) to mainstream. 

I found Username every bit as intriguing and well written as any by Stephen King.
